Love is love no matter the distance.

A Letter to Those in a Long-Distance College Relationship

To Whom it May Concern,

I'd like to start by introducing myself. My name is Greg, we probably do not know each other, and we likely never will. This is of no importance, however; I already know enough about you, and you already know enough about me. I am in a long-distance college relationship, and if you are too, then I am happy to say we are both addicted to the same drug

I know the highs that you get when you see your significant other. We are on first name bases with the butterflies in our stomachs when we see them walk off that train and run into our arms. Like lions, we know the pride of showing our loved ones off to all of our friends whom we brag about our relationships to. We have no choice but to savor every moment of the short time we can spend together.

Unfortunately, we also experience the same crash. We have fast-passes for the roller coaster that is our emotional well-being; we know every twist and turn but yet the feelings are always as strong as the first time we rode it. We all attend the same rehab when our loved ones leave, we all seek the same treatment for our confused hearts.

I am here to not only remind of you how courageous and strong-willed you are for enduring this journey with your loved one, but to offer the testimonial of other couples who have experienced what you are experiencing. You are not alone. At the end of the day, week, month, or whenever you see your loved one next, you will be reminded of why you are choosing to ride the coaster, why you are so addicted to this powerful drug. We know how quickly the bad memories of the time spent apart melt away when we see our loved ones. And that makes it all worth it.

My utmost respect and admiration to you and your loved one.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
